Costume by Johanna B., Fairfield, CA

I always wanted to be Snow White for Halloween. I could not find a worthy Snow White costume to purchase. I have been sewing since I was seven and figured I could make my own costume. I spent one year planning the costume and buying the materials. Since an adult size Snow White pattern is not available I decided to put two other patterns together to make this dress.

It is a combination of Glenda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch both from the Wizard of Oz. I wanted the costume to be as authentic as a Disney costume.

You cannot see it but I am wearing a floor length pink velveteen and satin cape just like she wears at Disneyland. I planned an 82 birthday party/Halloween party for my grandmother last year and wore this costume. I didn’t just look like Snow White that day, I was a princess!
